For those who have travelled to the North, "tupig" is one unique delicacy one just can't get enough of. But for comedians Ogie Alcasid, Betong Sumaya, Rufa Mae Quinto and Antonio Aquitania the concoction made from sticky rice is much more than just that. To them, it is like "drugs" that makes them high. Why? That's what viewers of the longest-running comedy/gag show "Bubble Gang" are about to find out this Friday in the special episode "Dis Is Siete: The Bubble Gang Anniversary Special."
Ogie, Betong, Rufa Mae and Antonio will star in a short (comedy) film "Tres Y Locos" written by Roel Raval and directed by Bubble Gang director Uro dela Cruz. The film will be shown alongside four other short films in "Bubble Gang's" anniversary episode.
Tres Y Locos is a semi-musical featuring a famous singing trio from the North. They get inspiration for their every performance from the famous Ilocano delicacy called "tupig." They have become so dependent on tupig that they could not deliver a wonderful performance without it. Will they be able to break free from their "bondage" to the sticky delicacy?
"Tres Y Locos" is one of five short films that will highlight the celebration of "Bubble Gang's" 17th year via the episode "Dis Is Siete: The Bubble Gang Anniversary Special" airing this Friday, October 19, after Inside Protege on GMA-7.
